The Rayo Vallecano 15-16 Away Kit is mainly black with a striking rainbow sash on the front, while the six colors making up the sash are also present on the sleeve cuffs and in the form of a set of ribbons on the upper back of the Rayo Vallecano 2015-16 Away Jersey.

Each color of the rainbow sash represents the club's support to a certain movement or group of people, while the complete rainbow sash stands for the fight against discrimination for sexual orientation.

  • Red stands for those who fight against cancer
  • Orange stands for those who fight for the integration of people with disabilities
  • Yellow stands for those who never lose hope
  • Green stands for those who fight to protect the environment
  • Blue stands for those who fight against child abuse
